Council Approves Motion to Join the Central Alberta Economic Partnership

The Central Alberta Economic Partnership (CAEP) is an organization of 35 municipalities, 1 First Nation, and 11 Associate members in Central Alberta who meet and work together for the economic betterment of the central Alberta region. Member communities include Kneehill County, Olds, Sundre, Red Deer, and now Drumheller.

Up until now, Drumheller did not belong to a regional economic partnership and the Economic Development Task Force feels very confident this will be beneficial for the community. Advantages include professionally prepared economic indicator reports, networking with other communities, and the soon to be launched Zoom Prospector software which will enable prospectors to speed up the site selection process.

In addition, CAEP works with the Central Alberta Access Prosperity Network, a nonprofit organization that travels to key countries around the world to promote the region and to unlock opportunities for member communities. Through these foreign direct investment meetings, CAEP enables member communities to connect with investment/business opportunities interested in Central Alberta.

Over the next few weeks the membership process between the Town of Drumheller and CAEP will begin and is expected to be completed in time for 2016.

Town of Drumheller Takes Action Against Beavers

The Town of Drumheller is committed to protecting trees near waterways and is taking steps to control the beaver population through Drumheller.

The Town of Drumheller Bylaw Department has been working with a contractor to help mitigate problems created by beavers in the Red Deer River through Drumheller. To date, the beaver population has been reduced near Riverside Drive, across from the old hospital. Town crews have wrapped dozens of trees with protective wire to ensure further damage by beavers does not occur. Work is also been done on other waterways within town limits. Efforts by town staff will continue until freeze up.

Residents who spot beaver damage in their neighborhood are encouraged to call Alberta Fish and Wildlife at 403-823-1670 or Greg Peters, Protective Services Director for the Town of Drumheller, at 403-823-1363 or email
